Asus Maximus Formula

Overall Score

Tweaker Section
The tweaker section is where the bulk of the performance related settings live. The list is quite long, the following three photos show the list of configurable settings:

The voltage settings allow quite a bit of flexibility in their settings, and to be honest some of the allowed values are a bit frightening… Here’s a summary of the range of configurable voltages for each item and the increment with which they can be adjusted. Unlike some boards where the settings get very coarse near the upper end of the range, the increment is constant through the full range of each of these settings on the Maximus.

  • CPU: 1.1 to 2.4 Volts in 0.0125V steps
  • DDR2: 1.8 to 3.4 Volts in 0.02V steps
  • FSB: 1.2 to 2.0 Volts in 0.02V steps
  • CPU PLL: 1.5 to 3.0 Volts in 0.02V steps
  • North Bridge: 1.25 to 1.81 Volts in 0.02V steps
  • South Bridge:1.05 to 1.225 Volts in 0.025V steps
  • South Bridge 1.5V: 1.5 to 2.05 Volts in 0.05V steps

In addition to these voltage settings, there are two settings regarding GTL reference voltages:

  • GTL Ref: 0.57x to 0.63x in 0.02x steps
  • North Bridge GTL Ref: 0.49x to 0.67x in 0.04x steps
